That's like trying to hit a butterfly ... It's tough, but we've faced a guy like that before in (former Boston Red Sox pitcher) Tim Wakefield, and you can go from there.
The stories, advice and tips they hear from these stars is what they’ll most likely remember for many years. I know if Dr. J (former basketball star Julius Erving) or Carl Yastrzemski (ex-Boston Red Sox great) ever ran a camp in my town when I was growing up, I would have definitely tried to go and I’d probably still vividly remember them talking to usMore quotes »
